Just one too many "Mistahs" getting in the news these days. PMA graduates have been looked up to since its conception. Not all are like the ones mentioned below but for reasons of high standards and professionalism expected of PMA graduates, this is one too many "Mistahs".....

Excerpt from Malaya.com.ph,

"Aside from Ocampo, also under investigation are Maj. Gen. (ret.) Carlos Garcia (PMA '71) and his former budget officer, Col. George Rabusa (PMA '81) for unexplained wealth and Air Force Maj. Gen. Ralph Flores (PMA '71) for allegedly faking his birth records.

The controversies in the AFP were exacerbated by the cases of Maj. Ferdinand Ramos, who was shown on TV engaging in sexual acts with several men seeking enlistment with the Army, and 2nd Lt. Rolly Joaquin, valedictorian of PMA Class 2004 who was deported from the US for shoplifting."

Excerpt from INQ7 Tulfo, On Target,

"It's not only Army Maj. Ferdinand Ramos who's a gay member of the PMA Class 1988. There are two others, one in the Marine Corps and the other at the Philippine National Police.

Ramos' classmate at the Marine Corps was transferred to the Navy because his subordinates did not respect him and called him "Inday," a word of endearment for a woman in the Visayan language.

The third one used to be with the PNP but is now in the United States, studying to be a nurse. This guy was the alleged lover of a gay PNP official, who has found greener pastures outside."

just enforce the standards. As in breeding, those that do not meet the standards are culled and are not even given the honor of being brought to the "tupadas". This should be a continuing process throughout the duration of their career in the military. No second chance. For in combat, the first mistake is the last.
Let us not wait for acorns to grow into oaks!!

The academy is not the answer. Reform the AFP is the answer. Lahat ng nagkamali demoted to private, para kahiya-hiya sila. Ikulog silang lahat sa brig at bigyan lamang ng bread and water. Iyong matatabang tiyan tiyak mawawala. Patakbuhin sila ng 3 miles everyday hanggang lumawit ang dila. Ipagvolunteer na lang silang maglinis ng mga kanal at imburnal.
